It’s Melon Time
Says Miss Steiner
Artists\ who like to picture negro
children blissful over a dripping
slice of red-fleshed watermelon are
merely recording an ancient asso
ciation, for Africa wa:z the land
where the watermelon originated. It
was cultivated for its refreshing
fruit throughout tropical and south
ern Africa long before the days' re
corded history.
The average American residing in
the United States today has develop
ed a liking for this delectable fruit
similar to that of the African, if
carload shipments and local con
sumption are any indication of pop
ularity. .
Watermelon is only a fair source
of Vitamin C, A and B, says Miss
Helen Steiner, assistant county ex
tension agent, however, people eat
larger servings of watermelon than
is common of other types of melons,
hence they receive approximately
the same food value as is common
for ‘other melons such as the musk=-
melon, which is an excellent source
of Vitamin C, a good source of Vit
amin A, and a fair source of Vita
min B. i
None of the melon family are easy « »
for the inexperienced to shop for, {
but a watermelon is harder to judge
than is the other melon group. The
jold saying, “When you thump and
I it goes ‘pink’ it’s green, and when it =
'sounds out a dull ‘punk’ it's ripe,”
isn’t conclusive. All the “punk” re- :
i veals is that the melon thus saluted
‘ls not immature. It may be over
!ripe, however, and it may also have
I White Heart, that streak of taste
| less hard white running lengthwise
through the flesh. A flavorable in- .
dication is a yellowish color on the
llower sigle. Ripe melons of good
quality are usually firm, symmetri
cal in shape, fresh looking, with a
| bloom on the surface' of the rind.
Most dealers will obligingly cut a
plug out of a melon for a prospect
ive buyer, and that plug, if big
! enough, will reveal any lurking de
fects except White Heart. ;
‘Muskmelons ‘are . easier to shop
for. For one thin, the stem scar is
rather significant. If the stem has
, come off leaving a smooth, sunken,
{ well-calloused scar the melon was
.vlne-rlpened and hence is likely to
be well flavored—that is, if it isn’t
overripe. If the ground color of the
rind, beneatn the surface netting,
is of a strong yellow color, the
melon is likely to be overripe.
| If half the scar is rough, ands
perhaps there is some of the stem
i still on, the muskmelon was not ripe
when it was picked and may not be
quite as well flavored.
In a high quality muskmelon, the
outer netting stands out in rather
bold relief, coarse and grayish in
color, whereas the ground color has
lost its dark green hue and has
changed to a lighter shade of
i green, with a/grayish or a yellow
ish tinge. Odor is one of the sur
est tests for ripeness. When a musk
| melon’s full flavor is .developed..the
aroma advertises it most energetic- 3
ally. =
An interesting method: of serving
either muskmelons or watermelons
is in the form '‘of balls in sherbert
| glasses with honey dribbled over the
fruit and a sprig of mint topping
them.
